You speed tests suggest it is not. This isn't very surprising as, if you are relying on the ISP's advertised "up to" figure you may be sure it's very seldom, if ever, at that maximum. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Networking>Slow connection speed> Related ressources: ForumConnection/slow speed issues, modem vs router vs swtich ForumSlow /spiking speed with wired connection through router ForumWhy is my internet connection detecting such a slow speed ?
